A Pleaseno (originally known as a Box Boy) is a rare, haunted chest that can be found in Bean Valley in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars and its remake. A Pleaseno resembles a pudgy ghost hiding in a treasure box. When the chest is closed, the Pleaseno looks like a regular treasure box; this mimicry allows it to easily prey on adventurers searching for valuable items, such as Mario and his party. It can also be encountered if the player has fought it already and every symbol in a "roulette" treasure box is different. In battle, a Pleaseno is a tough opponent: It has high attack, high defense, and high HP. It is also unaffected by status ailment-inducing attacks. The best way to defeat the Pleaseno is to make good use of its weakness to jump.

A Pleaseno uses a few special attacks, including Scream, which is a technique that cuts a party member's attack and defense in half, and Carni-Kiss, a powerful bite that causes significant damage. Moreover, the Pleaseno often summons Jinnie, another powerful enemy.

Coincidentally, the ghost within the Pleaseno bears a heavy resemblance to a Peepa.
